The Central Bank of Nigeria on Monday introduced new rules into the interbank foreign exchange market.

This came barely one week after the naira closed below 370/dollar on the parallel market.

The rules were contained in a new circular tagged, “Further liberalisation of the interbank foreign exchange market,’’ and signed by the Director, Financial Markets, Dr. Alvan Ikoku.

Among other things, the regular said authorised dealers in the interbank were meant to put only N1 spread on their transactions.

It also said that authorised dealers in the forex market could now defease their excess foreign currency trading positions to other authorised dealers in the market without seeking prior approval from the CBN

It read in part, “All authorised dealers shall be subject to a maximum spread of N1. Funds purchased by an authorised dealer from another dealer on the interbank market shall not be held in position overnight by the buying authorised dealer or sold to another authorised dealer.”

Very good.

But my concern for now is; when will they activate and increase withdrawal from Naira-denominated account from $100/month abroad?

I think that will also ease the stress on the naira at home and it won't in any way encourage the much talked-about round tripping.

CBN you know what to do and you didn't do it and you allowed Naira to crash that low before doing it. What is it taking you guys to bring down bank rate for invisible to 320, which will force the black market to sell at 330.

360 to USD is still very high.

Quite worrisome that banks charges more than even parallel markets on foreign transactions these days. Imagine banks like GTB, Access Bank and UBA charging almost close to #400/$ on FX and then I begin to wonder if the intervention by CBN is really worth it... embarassed

Quite unfortunate that CBN speaks English only they understand...


Anyone with CBN Twitter handle should please quote me. Thanks
